Lilium 'Zambesi' is an O.T. hybrid is also known as an Orienpet Lilium It is a cross between an Oriental Lily and a Christmas or Trumpet Lily.

It is easy to create an indulgent display of colour with Oriental Liliums. They are gorgeous in the garden and perfect for cut flowers too. Their heady fragrance permeates the summer garden with its sophisticated notes.

As well as adding glamour and fragrance to the garden, Oriental Lilies are also tough, and able to withstand our hot summers. They are best planted in a permanent position where, as they establish will become more floriferous.

It is a good idea to fertilise your Oriental Lilies, they are hungry bulbs and this will help to give you the best blooms. Adding an organic fertiliser when you first see growth, then again as they are fading is ideal. If you are growing your Lilies in pots, fertiliser is even more important and in this case a slow release pellet such as Thrive or a regular application of liquid fertiliser is best. Water to establish, and keep moist in active growth for best results.

In warmer climates, it is a good idea to grow your Oriental Liliums in part shade or morning sun, so your flowers will last longer.
